NCA-Makers-Performance-P1(1) We’ve had to take a couple months off from our storytelling shows in order to manage our growing improv program, but we couldn’t handle complete withdrawal, so we have a Telling True Stories class starting on March 24th (more of that below) and to publicize it I’ll be telling a story as part of the Maker’s Series sponsored by New City Arts Initiative. It’s a free show with artists in different media presenting work and then answering questions at the end.

Speaking of classes, we’re especially excited to have a brand new daytime comedy writing course at Writer House. (We mean a course on writing comedy that meets during the weekday, not a course in writing daytime-specific comedy.) We’ll cover sketches such as you’ve seen on Key & Peele, Portlandia, Saturday Night Live, and using sketch techniques in short plays and to strengthen scenes in longer plays, teleplays, screenplays, and even books.

Soundboard 3

Meanwhile our friends at WTJU will be featuring more recordings of our storytellers on Friday editions of Soundboard (9-10 am 91.1 FM).
